Hello, I have had a problem with Xfce for some time now, since an emerge -uDv world.

The Desktop wallpaper does not appear (desktop is gray), nor do the icons. I think xfdesktop is the name of the program I need to be running, but it can't start due to an error. Thunar fails to run with the same error
Code:
me@gandalf ~/Download $ thunar
process 22997: arguments to dbus_connection_send_with_reply_and_block() were incorrect, assertion "(error) == NULL || !dbus_error_is_set ((error))" failed in file dbus-connection.c line 3301.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
  D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
Aborted
me@gandalf ~/Download $ xfdesktop
xfdesktop[22998]: starting up
process 22998: arguments to dbus_connection_send_with_reply_and_block() were incorrect, assertion "(error) == NULL || !dbus_error_is_set ((error))" failed in file dbus-connection.c line 3301.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
  D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
Aborted


I have reemerged xfdesktop, thunar and any dbus related packages I could find installed (dbus-glib dbus-python dbus qt-dbus), but no luck. I have also run revdep-rebuild.
Any other ideas?

Total: 3 packages (1 upgrade, 2 reinstalls), Size of downloads: 6,029 kB

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No]

I solved the problem as described in this post http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-771104.html (I had not found the post before because I was searching with other terms). But IMHO this is a workaround, not a real solution. Is every user expected to make this change to a system file? Perhaps there could be a system-wide change to the default policies of dbus so that xfce works OK for all users.
